Do not take any medicines until at least two hours after drinking the Magnesium Citrate.

The Day Before your Procedure

No solid food! You may have CLEAR liquids for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Step 1 – Drink First Bottle

  • Drink first bottle of CLINPIQ followed by 40 ounces (5 cups) of clear liquid within 5 hours.

The Day of your Procedure

  • You MUST have someone with you in the waiting room and to drive you home after your procedure.
  • DO NOT wear jewelry, scented powder, lotions, sprays, colognes, perfumes or after shave to your procedure.
  • Check in at Facility Registration.
  • Check in at the Office (Park in Valet Parking at Erlanger Medical Mall. There will be no charge to you for using this service at the time of your procedure.)
  • It is very important that your colon is clean; otherwise, the procedure may need to be rescheduled for another day.

Note: A colonoscopy prep causes the body to lose a significant amount of fluid and can result in sickness due to dehydration. It’s important that you prepare your body by drinking extra liquids before the prep. Stay hydrated by drinking all required clear liquids during the prep. Replenish your system by drinking clear liquids after returning home from your colonoscopy. If you have any questions, please call our office at 423-267-5677.
